Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Rules

Clinical Decision Support Rule or CDS Rule

A CDS rule is a clinical guideline tool to provide clinicians with evidence-based recommendations or alerts at the point of care. CDS rules aim to improve patient outcomes, enhance patient safety, and reduce healthcare costs and medical errors by providing healthcare providers with timely and relevant information, including medication prescribing, diagnostic testing, disease management, preventive care, and treatment planning.
